Portland RSL Memorial Bowling Club News Report
Friday 20th September

Friday the 20th of September had Round 1 of Weekday Pennant listed on the calendar. What a day it was for the weather in Portland with the day being a beautiful Spring day bringing temperatures of 21 degrees Celsius. This set the scene for a great day of bowls free from the restraints of wind.

Division 1 played against an ambitious and determined team from Coleraine and it wasn’t until after the lunch break that Portland RSL Memorial were able to break away and consolidate the win with a score of 76 to 58. Well done team. Results were as follows:

  • Leonie Buchanan and her team of Orielle Rogers, Leanne Evison and Helen Hume taking out the win with a final result of 28 to 10
  • Jan Woolley and her team of Judy Fasoli, John Buchanan and Maureen Jennings in a tough tussle going down 21 to 25
  • Glenda Evans and her co-bowlers of Dot Angelino, Joan Englezos and Ken Woolley maintained their composure after a couple of high scoring ends by the opposition to put the win on the board with 27 shots to 23.

Division 2 only had to make their way to the northern end of town to play against Portland Gold. The team only went down by 4 shots. Results from these rinks were as follows:

  • Kathryn Beauglehole and her team of Pauline Breen, Bev Smith and Robyn McCabe had some tough ends where the shots were there, only to be taken out by the opposition. The final scores in this contest were 15 to 31, Portland Gold’s way.
  • Meredith Fredericks and her bowling team of Rosie Sturzaker, Ernie Arnold and Leonie Mirtschin took the win with 25 shots to 13.

Social bowls last Wednesday saw another large contingent of bowlers take to the green in perfect weather conditions. The winners on the day were Leonie Buchanan and Bert Roos with 3 wins on the board with plus 16 shots. Runners up on the day were Steve Turner and Cliff Woolcock with 2 wins plus 11 shots.

Last weekend we had the following teams enter the Far Western Bowls Division State / Men’s Triples competition held at Grangburn: Ken Evans (Skip), Ken Woolley and John Buchanan; Des Pitts (Skip), Greg Hoggan and Chris Elford; Graeme Solly (Skip), Paul Bentham and Tom Englezos; John Wallis (Skip), Chris Fleming and Ian Grayson. Ken Evans and Graeme Solly’s teams made their way to the semi-finals held on the Sunday. In the semi-finals Graeme Solly’s team defeated the fellow RSL trio to progress to the final, which they went onto win against Cat Gordan and team from Dunkeld. They will now go on to represent Far Western at the group final. Date and venue are yet to be determined. We wish them all well with their bowling at the next level of competition.

Kim Overall and Tom Englezos will be representing Far Western at the group final this coming weekend. At the time of print the venue and time had not been disclosed. The members of the Portland RSL Memorial Bowling Club would like to wish them both well and good bowling on the day.

Round 2 of weekday pennant sees Division 1 playing away at Hamilton. The teams have been announced as follows:

  • Leonie Buchanan (Skip), Orielle Rogers, Maureen Jennings and Helen Hume; Jan Woolley (Skip), Judy Fasoli, Kath Lovell and Ken Woolley; Marion Husson (Skip), Glenda Evans, Dot Angelino, and Joan Englezos.
